    The Green Hornet Strikes Again (Universal, 1941). One Sheet (27" X 41") Chapter 9 -- "The Tragic Crash." Created by Fran Striker, who also brought the Lone Ranger to life, the Green Hornet was first heard over Detroit's WXYZ radio station on January 31, 1936, and became an instant sensation. By day Britt Reid, crusading publisher of the Daily Sentinel and great-nephew of the Lone Ranger himself; by night the Green Hornet and his aide Kato fought gangsters and racketeers, all the while pursued by the police who mistakenly thought the Hornet to be as great a menace as the criminals he battled. The Hornet first appeared on movie screens in 1940, with this follow-up produced quickly thereafter. Starring Warren Hull as the Verdant Avenger and Keye Luke as his black-clad assistant, this serial is a fast-paced gem, as the Hornet and Kato battle racket after racket, leading up to a climactic encounter with archcrook Crogan (Pierre Watkins). The dramatic poster offered here, featuring a wonderful image of the Hornet, is typical of the Universal serial one sheets, which featured different art for each and every chapter (unlike, say, Republic sheets, which featured standard art with different photo insets for each). This poster had light fold wear with crossfold separations, and work to the bottom border. Professional restoration has returned a fresh and appealing look to this poster, making it a perfect and welcome addition to any serial collection. Very Fine- on Linen.
